AT&T Inc. signed a new power contract to purchase 300 MW of wind energy from a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources LLC, according to a June 15 news release.
The electricity will be sourced from two new wind projects in Wilbarger and Hardeman Counties in Texas. Previously, AT&T signed power purchase agreements for 520 MW of wind energy from two wind energy centers in Webb and Duval counties, also in Texas, and in Caddo County, Okla.
Together the agreements will deliver 820 MW of wind power to the telecom giant from the United States' largest producer of wind energy.
"We're going big on renewable energy. It's a clean, abundant, renewable source of home-grown power," said Joe Taylor, vice president of global tech optimization and implementation of AT&T.
NextEra Energy Resources is a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Inc. The company owns approximately 15,000 MW of operating wind and solar generation capacity, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence.
